At the start of 2017, Run Down The Demons® set a 24-month objective to generate $30,000 to fund the national, Veteran-and-Family-based Continuing Education program at The Ohio State University College of Social Work. Shattering the objective in just eight months, the $30,000 commitment to fund the Advanced Certificate in Serving Veterans and Their Families was completed! Run Down The Demons® is proud and extremely thankful for all our volunteers, sponsors, supporters, families, and friends who have and continue to take on paramount roles that have contributed to the success & fulfillment of the certificate program!
